Tips and techniques for achieving flawless floor finishes
Timber floors can be finished with an oil finish, clear or stained polyurethane, or a solid colour. The glossier the surface, the more imperfections will show.
Ensure there is no dust, as it will ruin your finish. You can apply a stain or a topcoat, which has stain in it.
Sand lightly between coats for professional floor finishes. Consider hiring a specific floor sanding machine if you have a large area to cover.
Slate and stone floors will require stripping of any existing finish with a specific product. A lamb’s wool applicator or 5mm mohair roller sleeve on a long pole will make the job easier.
